Not having an estate plan can cause unexpected problems for your families and loved ones after you are gone. By failing to act you are surrendering control of your hard earned legacy or the guardianship of your children to state laws and possibly judges. What impact have you had in creating those laws – do those laws make sure that your heirs are treated fairly in your eyes? A lack of an estate plan can cause discord of among family members, even leading to family members litigating against each other in court.

Your family does not have to suffer anymore after you are gone, and it will not because you have taken the right step in creating an estate plan that will protect your children and secure your family’s legacy. Having an estate plan help you keep your family together, and give you the ability to protect them in a manner that you see fit. Taking the time now to draft a last will or even more importantly – powers of attorney to place people in charge of your estate while you are alive and temporarily unable.

What Is Estate Planning?

Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging, during a person's life, for the management and disposal of that person's estate during the person's life and at and after death, while minimizing gift, estate, generation skipping transfer, and income tax. Estate planning includes planning for incapacity as well as a process of reducing or eliminating uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximizing the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. The ultimate goal of estate planning can be determined by the specific goals of the client, and may be as simple or complex as the client's needs dictate. Guardians are often designated for minor children and beneficiaries in incapacity.
